- 22 Jul, 2020
There are many types of office chairs, and different classification standards are used. For example, according to materials, there are leather office chairs, PU leather office chairs, cloth office chairs, mesh office chairs, plastic office chairs, and wooden office chairs...
A friend asked I like wooden office chairs, but I want to buy an ergonomic chair. Which one should I buy? What is the difference between them?
Ergonomic chairs are expensive, but worth the money
Ordinary wooden chairs are cheap and easy to put away
Generally speaking, wooden chairs are cheap and easy to put away, but the sitting feeling will be harder, and the hips will feel uncomfortable after sitting for a long time.
Ergonomic chairs are more expensive than ordinary wooden chairs, and they are more troublesome to carry, but they are definitely worth the price.
The ergonomic chair is designed based on the theory of "ergonomics". It summarizes the various data of people in the process of using the computer chair and combines modern chair manufacturing technology to develop a chair suitable for the correct sitting posture of the human body.
If you choose a wooden chair, make sure you sit in the correct posture. Never let the waist hang in the air because the waist needs to have enough support to reduce the pressure on the lumbar spine.
The ergonomic chair not only allows you to sit comfortably but also sits healthy and safe. The former is to adjust your inertia, the latter is to adapt to your inertia.
If your lumbar spine has deformed or has a lumbar disc herniation, it is best to choose an ergonomic chair. Because it will adapt to your skeleton, allowing you to use the most relaxed sitting posture to complete study and work.
Conversely, if your lumbar spine is still very good, then congratulations, you can choose a wooden chair, but remember to sit in the correct posture!
Compared with ordinary wooden chairs, ergonomic chairs can better help people in the office
From a health perspective, all chairs must address these elements from the bottom up feet, hips, hands, waist, and neck. And the ergonomic chair is all satisfied.
This is also the biggest difference between an ergonomic chair and an ordinary wooden chair.
Sit on a chair to ensure that you cannot hang your feet, and your feet should be placed on the ground naturally, to promote blood circulation. To meet this requirement, the seat of the ergonomic chair must be adjustable up and down to meet the needs of people of different heights and weights.
The armrest must be able to rise and fall, because when we are in office, we will raise our hands from time to time, and the armrest must play a supporting role. Otherwise, the hands will become more and more tired, the joints of the hands will be damaged, and conjunctivitis will come to the door.
The 4D armrest of the ergonomic chair can not only be adjusted up and down, front and back, but also the angle can be adjusted, which can give us all-round support for our hands.
Next is the buttocks. Because the wooden chair is made of wood, the buttocks will not stand after sitting for a long time. The ergonomic chair is mostly made of mesh, breathable and comfortable, and can share the pressure on the hips.
The waist should be adequately supported. The separation of the waist and back of the ergonomic chair conforms to the structure of the S-shaped lumbar spine. The waist is mostly supported by a mesh surface. It is very easy to breathe in summer and not easy to stick to sweat, and it will not easily breed bacteria.
The position of the waist protection can be adjusted according to the height of the human body, so that the middle is not hollowed out.
As for the neck, the headrest of the ergonomic chair can be adjusted in many ways and can move up, down, left, and right. Our cervical vertebrae can fit the headrest more closely, standardize the sitting posture of people, and be more in line with the modern office.
In this regard, ergonomic chairs can be said to kill ordinary wooden chairs, and they are more in line with modern office requirements.
In short, in the long run, the ergonomic chair is more suitable for office work. After all, most of us have been with us from birth to death, except for the bed, probably the office chair. Buying a good Smugdesk office chair is definitely the right choice.
